Help Bing Give to SchoolsSet Bing as your default search provider and we will donate $3 to help students.

Every Kid Deserves a Great Education

Every day students use Bing to explore the world, so we have a vested interest in seeing them succeed.

Choose Bing and we’ll send you a $3 donation code to use towards a public school classroom project of your choice on DonorsChoose.org. This money can give a new reader a copy of "The Wizard of Oz," an inkpad to a budding artist, or four new compasses to young urban explorers.

Easy. The only way to donate is to click the button on the page I linked in my original page. It sets your homepage automatically to Bing.

It's then up to you if you later decide to change back to your old homepage, or set another homepage.

I don't care for bing but the chance to help others is too perfect. I'll do it in Firefox. It won't bother me either way.

EDIT: Never mind. Didn't realize I had to give them my email and all that jazz. I feel bad for not doing it, but I get enough junk emails.

If you already have Bing as your homepage, you have nothing to lose. Go to that page and click the button. Your homepage does not change but you've done something good.
